Interview With Program Specialist at Law Library of Congress

In Custodia Legis, the blog of the Law Library of Congress in Washington, has been running an interview series featuring members of the library staff. The series started in late October 2010.

This week's interview is with Kimberly Zellars, Program Specialist:
"How would you describe your job to other people?"

"To be honest if I had to choose one word it would be eventful. My current job revolves around quality customer service, attention to detail, and event planning. I have had an opportunity to work alongside and meet various leaders in the United States and abroad, including Supreme Court Justices, media professionals, and members of parliament. One of my most recent assignments was working with the Friends of the Law Library of Congress on the 2011 Wickersham Awards ceremony. The event honored Justice John Paul Stevens for his outstanding contributions to the legal profession."

"What is the most interesting fact you’ve learned about the Law Library?"

"Expect the unexpected. While I have a variety of reasons for saying that the best example I can give is when the Outreach Team was told we would host a play. Yes, you read correctly, a play. A legally historical play, but a play nonetheless. So overall, I learned to expect the unexpected, think outside the box, and there is never a wrong opinion, except the unspoken one."
